Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 17 February 2066 at 12:14.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1962" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2066 after 19 days on 11 March 2066 at 22:48.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 817 of Meeus index or 1770 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 36 minutes. It is 47 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 8 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 1 minute longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠35.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠61.6°.
Moon is at perigee at 01:15. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 4 February 2066 at 09:58 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next apogee on 4 March 2066 at 06:48 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 368 665 km (229 078 mi) away from Earth. It is 6 157 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 1 691 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in ascending node in ♑ Capricorn at 21:32 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 6 March 2066 at 20:17 in ♋ Cancer.
At 21:32 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
1 day since the previous standstill on 18 February 2066 at 23:33 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.369°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.268° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 March 2066 at 15:15 in ♊ Gemini.
In 3 days on 24 February 2066 at 08:50 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
